Join the 12DaysOfAction campaign against sexual exploitation
The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) is promoting 12DaysOfAction,August 1-12, 2017, to work to change six companies that are normalizing or profiting from sexual exploitation. NCOSE says, "All year round we work to change the culture by changing corporations. Government policies are very important, but if we're honest, Google and Amazon are far more intimately connected to our day-to-day lives than Congress is."
That's where you and I come in. NCOSE says, "We need YOU to get involved with our #12DaysOfAction campaign from August 1-12 where we give you 12 days to take 6 actions which can influence CEOs around the country!"
Which companies are being targeted? NCOSE has identified a "dirty dozen" list of offenders. For the 12DaysOfAction campaign, the following six are targeted: Amazon, Comcast, Cosmopolitan Magazine, EBSCO information services, Roku, and Google's YouTube. Each of these businesses contributes to normalizing and/or profiting from sexual exploitation through selling or providing explicit and pornographic material. (See below for details.)

You don't have to spend money. It only takes a few minutes. Even a busy person can work one or more action steps into their schedule.
We CAN made a difference. Let's do it!
